More than 1.7 million Voters' Pamphlets for the Jan. 26 special statewide election start going in the mail today.

Every Oregon household will receive a copy, reaching the state's 2.1 million registered voters, according to the Oregon Secretary of State's Office.

On the ballot are Measures 66 and 67, which ask voters whether to uphold two tax measures approved by the 2009 Legislature. The 92-page Voters' Pamphlet contains 204 arguments: 68 in favor of upholding Measure 66, 68 favoring Measure 67, 34 opposing Measure 66 and 34 opposing Measure 67.

There are no other measures, state or local, on the ballot. Ballots will be mailed out Jan. 8. They must be returned by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, to be counted.

The online version of the Voters' Pamphlet can be read by going to "What's New" at Oregonvotes.org. An audio version and a Spanish version of the Voters' Pamphlet will also be available online.

The deadline for registering to vote in the special election is Jan. 5.
